Pink Paislee Starlight

Blogging again today, Not bad, eh? Let's see how long I can keep this up. But so far so good.

A while ago, I got some papers and stuff from Pink Paislee's latest line, Starlight, from Scraplagret. I love it! It's my favourite colours and perfect for both boys and girls. So here are two layouts from this line.

Today, I've cleared out the little box room that is attatched to my scrap room. It is absolutely full of junk, and I have nowhere else to put it. Too bad, because once it was more or less empty, I could see the possibilities to actually do something great in there, like putting up shelves and use it to store some of my stash. Perhaps add a little tabletop to it, and I could keep the sewing macine up permanently in there, not having to put it away every time I have used it. *Sigh* Oh well, if I ever find another hidden cubbyhole to hide away some of that junk in, I will do something about this one. If...

My Scrapbook Nook June kit

Spring term is finally over, and we are on SUMMER BREAK!!! It has taken a few days to wind down and regain the balance of everything, but now I look forward to finally having some time to actually blog the stuff I make. And since it's June, what better way to start than with the June kit from My Scrapbook Nook.

This month's kit features fabulous So Sophie from My Mind's Eye, lovely colours and fabulous patterns, perfect for Summer photos. The photo on this layout shows Albin at a playground in Karlshamn on June 6.
I also made this little box, Everything is from the kit, except for the butterfly, which is from the May kit, and the flower.
I used one of these vintage button boxes, the brown one in the middle, as a template. If you want to see how I did it, check out my class here.
And so, what's up for next month then? It's Lily Bee Hello Sunshine. At a first glance, I think it might be a little too bright for me, but I have never ever been disappointed at a Nook kit, so I'm pretty sure this will be a blast too! Leah is the greatest at combining things in these kits that bring out the very best in whatever pattern paper is in it.
I'll be back with more from this kit shortly :)

Right now...

...I'm on the roller coaster ride that is called life. Right now, it is very obvious that there are both high hills and deep valleys along the road.

Like Forrest Gump's very wise mama used to say - "Life is like a box of chocolate - you never know what you're gonna get". So, I'm letting this box symbolize my life right now. It isn't chocolate inside, but you never know what you're gonna get, right?

I made this box with supplies from Scraplagret. There's a lot of Prima loveliness - both papers and flowers.

And looking at it like that, there's no way of knowing that when you take the lid off, this is what you get. This is Agnes' enchanted forest. I got those chipboard trees in a DT-kit from Scraplagret, and instead of just adding them as flat embellishments on a layout, I decided to do this instead. I embossed them with my Cuttlebug, sanded a bit on top, and then used Glimmer Mist in different green shades.
And here's my little fairy princess herself. Isn't she just adorable in that dress? I actually tried it on her today, and she had outgrown it. Sad, because she was so pretty in it.
So now I'm going out to enjoy a fantastic summer day. I hope you all have lovely weather, wherever you are :)
